The Braves received some really unfortunate news last night after Ozzie was injured sliding into second base. It was announced fairly quickly during the game that Ozzie had fractured his right little finger and was going to be out for the remainder of the 2022 regular season, although manager Brian Snitker left the door open for Ozzie’s return for a while. the playoffs.
As Ozzie headed to the IL was a foregone conclusion, there was the question of who was going to be brought up to replace him on the active roster. Ehire Adrianza is still on the IL with a quadruple strain and the options among the guys currently on the 40-man roster were basically just Rylan Bannon at Gwinnett. The Braves could have added someone like Taylor Motter or Ryan Goins, but that would have required a 40-man roster change. The Braves went with the cleanest roster option.
Rylan Bannon was claimed from Dodgers waivers just days after the Dodgers claimed him from the Orioles in August. Overall, Bannon hit Gwinnett well, although some of that production came from a three-game streak in late August where he went wild. With Adrianza out, the Braves need him as a backup infielder and Bannon has seen time at second and third base while already on the 40-man roster. In 20 games at Gwinnett, Bannon reduced .323/.432/.477 with a pair of homers.
